in reply to How many languages are in your project?

A couple of years ago, I figured out how many languages I've written in to help create Perl 6:

  • Perl 5
  • Perl 6
  • PIR
  • C
  • Make/shell
  • Haskell
  • x86 assembly
  • PPC assembly
  • Scheme
  • Lua
  • Perl 1
  • XS

Switching between PIR, Perl 5, and C in an afternoon is interesting.

    I'm double curious: How did Perl 1 fit in?

      I wrote the first version of Punie as an experiment, thinking that Perl 1 would be relatively easy to implement while still Perlish. Allison rewrote it as a test of the Parrot Compiler Tools.

    Just being curious: What did you use Haskell for?

      Perhaps Pugs? There's also a p5 to p6 translator in the pugs repo somewhere, which is also written in haskell.

      Update: yes, pugs ;-)
